PLARN- Plastic Yarn!

I have figured out what to do with the collection of plastic grocery bags in the clost. I have an obnoxious amount of these bags form Daves Marketplace and want to turn them into something useful instead of them stockpiling as usual, or throwing them in the trash. I did some research and figured out that you can flatten them out nicelly and cut off the tops and bottoms (handles and closed end). That leaves you with the round body of the bag. You cut those into strips (which are loops , connected at each end still). Doing a simple slip knot, you can boyscout your way into a chain of these plastic loops and there you have it, a chain of plastic to roll up! Now what do you think I am going to do with all of these recycled/ repurposed bags? Crochet a new bag of course!
